Brookdale Community College announces a new articulation agreement with University of Phoenix (UOPX) that creates new pathways for Brookdale graduates in high-demand Information Technology (IT), Nursing, Criminal Justice, Business and Management programs to advance students to the baccalaureate level.

The agreement includes course-by-course pathways for each transfer program. These transferable courses will provide an affordable pathway to help students accelerate their learning and move into their careers faster.

“This new articulation agreement with Brookdale Community College opens up opportunities for students to earn degrees in several high-demand, popular professions,” said the University of Phoenix Provost John Woods. “Our goal is to help students get started on the right career track in the most efficient and affordable way; this agreement is a step in that direction.”

UOPX will allow up to 87 credits of transfer to Brookdale graduates of AAS and AS programs who are admitted to UOPX to pursue one of these baccalaureate degrees. Brookdale encourages students in these programs to explore their options to further their education.

“The agreement with University of Phoenix provides a significant number of credits applied to the baccalaureate program,” said Dr. Sarah McElroy, executive director of Career & Transfer Pathways. “Brookdale is pleased to provide our graduates with the opportunity to transfer to University of Phoenix to advance in these high-demand fields.” According to US News, IT and Nursing professions account for four of the top-10 best jobs in the country.

These articulated programs offer Brookdale students excellent career and educational opportunities and, with the help of high-skilled faculty, can find the right option for their future.
